In the CADLink Settings window, opened from the CADLink window, there are various options for defining the import behavior and the BOM display.
General settings, such as drawing type or standard values for unit or revision code, are entered in this tab.
The fields on the General Settings tab are described in the following table.
|Show Preview Image||Defines whether the drawing or image describing the item is displayed directly in CADLink.|
|Drawing Type||Default drawing type, which is transferred to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central if one is not transferred from the CAD.|
|Default Base Uom||Default unit, if no unit is transferred from CAD.|
|Default New Revision||Default revision code, which is stored if one was not transferred from the CAD.|
|Create New BOM Version||If selected, no changes are made in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central when the BOM is changed or items are deleted, but a new BOM version is created directly.|
|Use Default Category Code||Defines whether the default category code should be used, if it does not exist.|
In the Field Mappings tab, the mapping of fields between CADLink and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central determines exactly which values are transferred from a field in CADLink to the correct field in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
In the Color Codes tab, the colors and their meaning are defined for use in the BOM.
By default, the colors have the following meaning:
- Yellow – There are changes to the part, which are adopted during import.
- Green – The part does not yet exist in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and is created again.
- Grey – The corresponding part no longer exists in the BOM and is removed from the document BOM in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
